Hey!

I have been a member of the nexus community since fallout 3. I have worked on a number of projects, some went well some have not!

Currently I am the lead designer in a huge project for Skyrim. I am trying to bring a "World of Warcraft" esque feeling to Skyrim. Essentially, I am re creating WoW in Skyrim using native Skyrim sources. All content we use in the mod is created by the authors of the Dev Team, OR, used with permission and credits from authors on the nexus websites.

The current dev team consists of me ( CelsiuZ ) and Hellscreamy.

We have been working on the mod together since shortly before christmas. Currently I am working on the province of Duskwood and Hellscreamy is developing Elwynn Forest.

I do the majority of Landscape creation, retexturing and other things inside of the creation kit.
Hellscreamy is extreamly talented when it comes to scripting, height map creation, npc creation, dialouge and various other similar things that I work with. He is also the current mesh creator for the mod.

As i said before we have gotten very far in our development of the mod and we are looking at releasing an alpha for the community to play around with while we continue to work with the other zones. As for current plans we want to finish all of the Eastern Kingdoms.

IF our team can be expanded we will attempt to create Durotaur and other continents as well.

Currently we have some factions set up, vendors, mobs, locations, dungeons and other misc things in place. Hellscreamy is also scripting some quests.


We badly need help with:

Red and Bold text is something we need extremely much help with

Mesh creation & high quality texturing ( I am definitely not a pro in Photoshop)
Texturer - We have rudimentary textures in place, but i need someone with Photoshop skills to help make the textures of quality, this is our most needed addition right now.
Voice Acting ( at some point we want to add some voice acting)
Scripting (Hellscreamy is very talented in this, but he cannot devote all of his time for this)
Video/Trailer creation, we want a small trailer made for the mod for when we are about to release the beta.
Sound help, We would like to perhaps not compose from scratch, but we would like some custom sounds for the mod ( tavern replacements, ambient sounds etc)
Animation, We need help animating new races ( blood elfs, gnomes, dwarfs and ogres currently)

If you feel like you would like to see this mod end up completed and would like to offer your assistance in developing this mod, please do message me.

I check my message box everyday on the Nexus.

If you would like more information of the mod, please post below or as i said message!
Link to our mod on the nexus:WoW Conversion Mod





Cheers and thank you,

I would be more than willing to work on the acting aspect of the project. I can do story-line writing and voice over work as well. I have a few groups in communities I've done voice acting for and should be able to get a full acting cast together for a project of this size. I won't be much help on the other aspects of this project but if you'd like my services let me know. You can contact me on this forum and I'll get you my email and phone number.

Hey!

We definitly need help! I will contact you with further details as the mod progresses, we are currently trying to finish up Elwynn forrest and Duskwood so we can do a public release of them as an alpha. We will probably not use voice acting in the alpha, but definitly further on we have some things that we will use it for.

An example right of the bat is greetings, guards in WoW always had a greeting for you, and we would like to use it in our mod as well:
Examples:
"Greetings."
"Hey, there."
"You need something?"
"What can I do for you?"
"Light be with you!"
"Well met."
"Hello!"
"Good day to you!"
"How are you?"
"Light bless you."
"King's honor friend."
"Forget something?"
"I'm kind of busy."
"Quit it!"
"What's your problem?"
"Knock it off!"
"You're getting on my nerves!"

Its a small easter egg, but we feel its better than just using regular skyrim guard dialouge to immerse you a bit better.

As i said, i will message you with further details as to how the mod progresses.


Thank you so much for offering to help us!

Isn't everybody supposed to pretend they hate Wow if they go to a skyrim site or play skyrim? I'm confused now. Isn't self hating wow player still the only way to go most of the time?

Haha,

Why hate it, it was a freaking brilliant game at one time, i truly think that it is one of the games where i have been most immersed in.

Granted i dont like WoW anymore since they patched the crap out of it, but hey, they cant cater to all players!

If you are in need of voice acting work, I'd be willing to help out. I do v/o for a living, but I'd be more then willing to do some voices for a mod. For free.

And then you get a cease and desist letter from Blizzard. :( They do tend to do that.

EnaiSiaion,

Havnt gotten one yet and we've been around for a while.

Were not claiming we are World of Warcraft, were just bringing the feeling back, were not making a 100% authentic copy even..
Plus our resources are our own.
If worst comes to worst we will just rename everything change the textures around and they have no claim.


As long as it stays a 100% free project we should in theory be okay!

Bump: I apologize for bumping, but we really are in dire need of a texture artist!


Thank you,
